Mini-PCs are small, capable devices that can deliver enough computing power for on-the-go jobs.

Most users do not need the latest i7 processor teamed-up with 16 GB of RAM, they only need a computer capable of performing basic to medium tasks.

Compared to regular desktop PCs, mini-PCs are cheaper, they run on less power, have eye-catching design, and don’t take as much space on your desk.

Mini-PCs can also be customized for specific performance.

The main downside is represented by the task limitation they impose, with very few exceptions. You cannot use a mini-PC to edit videos of photos because the results will not be satisfying.

Also, don’t buy a mini-PC to use it to play games, it simply does not have the computing and the graphics power to run games smoothly.

If you do want a small, portable gaming device, check out this mini-tower gaming PC from MSI.
